CAT 2023 Test City Preference & Allotment Process

  • Candidates will be given the option to select six test cities in order of preference
  • Cities and centres will be assigned to the candidates only after the last date for CAT 2023 registration is over
  • Candidates need not rush to block slots and cities in the initial days of registration
  • Although IIMs try their best to assign candidates to their first preferred city, in case this is not possible, they will be assigned a city following their given order of preference.
  • Candidates will not be able to select the exam session because it will be assigned randomly.  

Few Delhi NCR Cities Remain Separate Test Cities 

All the important cities in Delhi NCR, which were clubbed into one city earlier have been separated again. Now the CAT applicants from Delhi NCR can choose any six preferred test cities out of them. The cities avaibale for Delhi NCR candidates are:

Delhi
New Delhi
Faridabad/Gurugram
Panipat
Noida/Greater Noida
Ghaziabad
Meerut
Rohtak

Facility to Save Travel Time

Now a resident of Noida/Greater Noida or Ghaziabad may choose the test cities separately. This will help in reducing the travel time and inconvenience that was caused few years ago.
